Tea Party Less Popular Than Muslims, Atheists, 21 Other Groups
Skeeve
The Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about — lower than both Republicans and Democrats. It is even less popular than much maligned groups like “atheists” and “Muslims.” Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.

Progress indeed.

Good news.

With the recent ascendancy of Rick Perry, I hope that information is correct.

Here's a link to the original NYT op-ed piece. Sadly, while they quote polls, they do not cite them and so I was unable to judge their methods. The analysis is interesting, however, and certainly "feels" right.

Oddly enough, all the tea partiers I know are atheists. Granted, this isn't the first time I've come to regard these individuals as the "worst atheists ever". My wife seems to think this is totally reasonable and they simply don't identify with "atheist culture" but if they idea of blacks voting against Abraham Lincoln (work with me here) to preserve the Southern Way of Life is analogous to atheists getting into bed with the Religious Right with or with out a sheet with a hole in it, then well, I think there's a name for this.

If this is the case, you have to ask yourself why they get so much air time, who is pushing this agenda and why haven't Americans nailed Murdock to a tree yet....

The people behind the Tea Party get away with it because they are offering voters something for nothing. Like any good con game the real costs of the Tea Party are well hidden and only become apparent when its too late.
